{ My God Love story }

mercredi 23 juillet 2014

This is the second installment of Proverbs 31 ministries blog hop for the Bible Study "I am messing up my kids??" .

My love story with God is the typical love story: I met him, I left him and found him again!
He is my first love and will probably be my last one!

When I was very young , at about 7 or 8, I loved God and felt close to him.
I also remember I used to say that, when I grow up , I would either be a nun or  a crazy woman. 
What a strange thing to say for a kid, right? 
I now undertsand that I felt at the time that there was something in me, a gap, a hole, that nothing earthly could ever fill and that if I failed to  turn to God to fill it, I would remain empty and fall into madness. I felt that at the time, and I was only 8.

 You know the feeling, when you have ordered fabric, and you know it is coming in the post any day...
Now this is how I felt and even more as I was waiting for the most beautiful fabrics to come, some I have pre-ordered for what felt like ages!

Sundays are good: my husband is home, I can get some sewing done in the morning while he plays football with te kids.
Summer is now truly upon us: lots of play time, less Me time i.e. less sewing time. 
But in the evenings I manage to sew this pillow cover, my firts ever pillow cover.
Earlier this week , my dear friend Patty Sloniger, posted a photo of a quilt as you go block she was sewing, inspired by this tutorial. I was hooked! 

 I pulled out of my stash all the scraps from her collections that I had from a previous project and from a great envelop she sent me earlier this year. 
And I just had fun.

I am linking today to Proverbs 31ministries  .
I recently joined a Bible study group : It is something I never did before but the title caught my eye, and my heart.
We are working on Lysa Terkeust latest book : "I am messing up my kids?".
Great title , right?? And a question I ask myself about 100 times a month:!
SO yes, I thought, this Bible study is for me!!

 If you follow me on Facebook, you might be aware that I am back into a quilting mood right now:!! I can't get enough.
There is something so relaxing and so rewarding in the whole quilting process... and unlike sewing garments, you don't have to worry about sizing and fit!!

SO! I finished my Bizzy Kid quilt! yay for me!  The pattern was made by Cluck Cluck sew and it is really great! Love it when it all goes smoothly!

Today I am invited over Victoria's blog to be part of her 3tkae one dress" series and I am so so honored!
The very talented Heidi was the previous sewer invited and left this gorgeous dress for me as a source of inspiration: read Heidi's post.

Aujourd'hui je suis l'heureuse invitée de la série "prenez une robe" sur le blog de Voctoira "As it Seams" . Le principe est de se passer l'inspiration, d'une couturière à l'autre et de s'amuser à créer des robes... 
Voici ce que la talentueuse Heidi a laissé pour moi, il y a un mois, lors du dernier post:
